Geek Out at These Belleville Area Comic Book Shops

Hey, we get it. Sometimes, you just need to geek out. And what’s a geekier pastime than comic books? If you’re a fan of this sequential art form and the culture that surrounds it, check out some of our favorite comic book shops in the Belleville area.

The Fantasy Shop

The Fantasy Shop has been a St. Louis area staple since 1981, and is still going strong to this day with locations in South County, Creve Coeur, Maplewood, and St. Charles. They sell a wide variety of comics, plus card and tabletop games.

If you’re looking for something to do, they host events every week, if not twice a week. Highlights include Magic: The Gathering game nights and geeky yard sales. They also celebrate the annual free comic book day on the first Saturday in May.

The name, Fantasy Books, Inc, has been serving the area for over 30 years. This current iteration has been a St. Louis staple since 2013, and expands to four locations in Edwardsville, Fairview Heights, St. Louis, and Belleville.

The Belleville shop sells comic books, toys, action figures, statues, and collectibles, and hosts several events every week, including a weekly Magic: The Gathering tournament, RPG nights, and Yu-Gi-Oh! tournaments.
